Call for Abstracts

SWOGS would like to encourage the submission of abstracts for presentation from medical students, Foundation Doctors, StRs and Consultants in Obstetrics and Gynaecology from the South West region.

As well as oral presentations, we will have a Poster Exhibition in a prominent place within our venue.
Generous prizes are given for the best oral and poster presentations at the Meeting.

New: Undergraduates who have abstracts accepted for oral presentation will be given complimentary Registration in order to present at SWOGS 2020.  This excludes travel and accommodation costs and is for Registration only.

Abstracts present an excellent opportunity to represent interesting work to your colleagues.  Abstracts may be by way of an original paper/trial, audit, case study or a professional experience. Oral presentations will be around 10 minutes in length to allow adequate time for questions. Videos (no longer than 5 minutes) may also be submitted for review, along the lines of “How we do it”.  Please attach your video to your E-Mail.
